Only problem with the jamis is that the chrome is pitted where it has stickers.

Re: Late in the game

WOW... That Jamis is Kool...
I'm really liking that concept though…
But… if that Jamis was mine…
I think I would up date the drivetrain with a triple chainring…
And find me another donor for the spitfire…
I’ve got an old teranaut mountain bike of that early 80’s vintage…
I have not had the courage to rob any parts off her yet…

P.S. use two right hand thumb shifters if you do update the Jamis...
It's more klunker/early 80's correct...

Didn't have a multispeed chainring so I couldn't use the wheels with the 5 speed sprocket, so I made it a single speed with some other wheels I had lying around, rides pretty

nice.

Nice job. I like that front fork. The baby blue paint is perfect. Can you post a better pic of the handlebar/stem setup?
